Grandfather Clock Choices – Brands, Chimes, Styles, Woods, Kits and New vs. Antique

07.20.07

Grandfather Clock choices abound, even amongst the finest makers of Grandfather Clocks. There are literally dozens of variables to consider when deciding which, if any, grandfather clock is right for you and your home decor or office design setting. At 1-800-4CLOCKS, the decision task has been made a lot easier because only the higher-end grandfather clocks are offered for sale, as well as some special Antique Grandfather Clocks. After years of industry experience and careful market and product evaluations, the current range of new brands we offer are Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks, Ridgeway Grandfather Clock Collection, premium Kieninger Grandfather Clocks, Hermle Grandfather Clock assortment, and a Bulova Grandfather Clock selection (Bulova Clocks not long ago acquired the design rights to the famous Sligh Grandfather Clocks, and uses Hermle Clock mechanical movements).

This is the first of a series of posts we are planning on the subjects noted in the title of this posting. We welcome more and specific suggestions or requests for other aspects of a grandfather clock purchase. Subsequent posts will address choices of chimes (and the history of clock chimes), such as the Westminster Chime vs. the Triple Chime Movement, styles such as flat-top vs. split pediment, the many grandfather clock wood variations, the pros and cons of grandfather clock kits, and how this market has changed so much over the years, and the age old question of whether to buy a new grandfather clock or an antique grandfather clock, and what factors to consider when weighing this choice. The option of buying a vintage grandfather clock will also be addressed in subsequent postings. Keep your questions coming……
